What would you do if you were stranded in a South Asian jungle without anything to eat or drink? Well, according to the survival training that US Marines recently received, you should drink cobra blood. As the reports, the officers were directed to drink the snake's blood during Cobra Gold, an intense annual military exercise that's being held in Thailand.
According to the article, officers from the Royal Thai Marines advised that cobra blood could provide invaluable nutrients in a scenario where both water and food are scarce. In photos from the event, you can see several officers in their camo uniforms tilting their heads back to drink the blood directly from the serpent's body. One US Marine who had previously participated in Cobra Gold told that the blood had a distinct "fishy flavor."
Although cobra venom is deadly, their blood isn't poisonous.
